Believe in Yourself

Hi friends and Happy Monday! :)  I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!  I've been having some lower back troubles as of late (probably from a super old mattress and constantly lifting a one year old) :) so we didn't do too much this weekend, but it was a wonderful one nonetheless.  Anyway, I have a fun card to share with you today so I'll get right to it.

For my card today, I used this gorgeous image from Saturated Canary.  She's called Bubbles and I just love her.  She reminds me of Glinda from The Wizard of Oz.  She was so much fun to color :)  I of course colored her with my copic markers.  Here are the colors I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Pinks: R81, R83, R85, R89
Blues: B91, B93, B95, B97, B99
Shadow around image: W2, W4, Blender

For the bubbles, I added Glossy Accents and then dumped Martha Stewart glitter on top.  It really is a nice effect, it's hard to capture with the camera.  My DP is from MME.  The swirly accents were made using a Memory Box Die.  The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.  The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I added a bow to finish it off and the jewel accent in the center is from Michael's.  Here are a few more pictures:

What do you think?  Well, that's it from me today.  Thank you so much as always for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day! :)
